The Twain Meet in Music. Dave Brubeck, leader of the new progressive jazz school in America, is all concentration as he watches, and listens to, Halim Abdul Jaffar Khan play on the sitar in Bombay. Perhaps Brubeck's sensibility has been quickened by the similarity between jazz and the melodies created on the spur of the moment out of the sitar, for improvisation is the distinctive characteristic of great jazz music as well as great sitar music. Brubeck's modern jazz quartet will appear in Delhi on Tuesday.
